25. Workshop

Dysfunctional discussion culture – In the clutches of political correctness

Without the freedom to search and research, there can be no economic and social innovation. The freedom of research is threatened by the demand for politically correct language and attacked by uninhibited, increasingly anonymous aggression on social media.

The Progress Foundation’s workshop was entitled “Broken Discussion Culture – In the Clutches of Political Correctness”. To get into the mood for the topic, the participants read various classic and current texts by Romano Guardini, Jonathan Haidt, Axel Honneth and Eckhard Jesse, among others. These served as the basis for a completely open discussion among the participants.

The productive liveliness of the workshop and the breadth of ideas that came with it also found their way into the book “Reden und reden lassen”. Despite the diversity of the contributions, the publication is based on the conviction that in a liberal democracy, the principle of “talk and let talk” must not be shaken.
